Hand carved and turned in Cornish Serpentine stone.
late 1800s Sold



H 17 cm (7") W 30 cm (12")


A bird bath carved from Serpentine stone unique to Cornwall's Kynance Cove on the Lizard peninsular - England's southernmost tip. The octagonal basin's rough hewn interior contrasting with a smoothly turned exterior. Beautifully marbled stone in the colours and textures of the sea, carved in lovely proportions. Minor chips and nibbles - which the birds do not seem to mind ! Serpentine stone is reputedly a healer of the heart and soother of the mind.
Late 1800s.

Stock No. 1983
